How to Grow:
Exposure: Full sun to partial shade
Direct sow early March to the end of May. In small areas, seeds can be scattered by hand. Seeds must come into contact with the soil in order to germinate. Do not bury seeds more than 2-3 times their thickness. Can be planted in containers, disused laneways; verges; or along the edges of cultivated areas in residential or agricultural properties – wherever you’d like to see more bees!
Keep the seeded area as evenly moist as possible to help the seeds germinate and the young seedlings become established. Weeds need to be kept under control. Once they are growing, the mix will not require watering as frequently except in long periods of hot, dry weather. In late summer, many of the components will produce seed heads that can be harvested and replanted the following spring.
